When I and was about 5 or 6 ( 60 years ago) my dad make me a widget. You could put a belt in the slot and balance the very tip on the edge of, lets say the kitchen table and it would float there. You could touch the top and it would bob up and down but would not fall.

The balancer was shapped like a wedge with one end round like a quarter and the other end was shapped like a wedge. next to the round end there was a slot or grove that you could put a belt into.

It was about an inch wide, inch high, and 4 or 5 inches long. I need the formula and a drawing. I want to make some for christmas gifts.
